Hilton Pattaya took part in Careers@Hilton Week, Hilton’s annual global career event showcasing the many opportunities available in the hospitality industry for youth and other job seekers.
From May 15 to May 21, Hilton hotels and corporate offices around the globe hosted hundreds of events to inform young people about the exciting and diverse career opportunities in the hospitality industry. This initiative is a part of Hilton’s Open Doors commitment, which aims to positively impact at least one million young people by 2019 by connecting them to opportunities in the hospitality industry, preparing them to reach their full potential or directly employing them.
On May 15, Hilton Pattaya hosted an event that welcomed 50 students from Aksorn Institute of Technology Pattaya to experience and practice job skills together with Hilton Pattaya’s team members. The students were assigned to six different departments to practice and perform the role play as a real situation; to learn the process of welcoming guests and how to check-in and check-out at front office, to handle a phone call at MAGIC call center, to try folding the towel and set up a guestroom at housekeeping department, to set up a banquet table, a dinner table at restaurant and making mocktail and cocktail at food and beverage department, to support chefs for preparing the ingredients and cooking for the lunch for their friends at kitchen, and take a hotel tour to see the engineering system andother offices.
Rudolf Troestler, general manager, said, “These young students will face the challenge in the real working life soon. So, this is a great opportunity for them to discover themselves, prepare and strengthen the confidence. All suggestions and experiences that they received here will support their decision to choose the right career in the near future.” Careers@Hilton Week events are a unique opportunity for Hilton to inspire job seekers about careers in the hospitality industry, and to support them by providing guidance on the skills that are vital to succeed in the workplace and beyond.
